The Return of the Blend

The Return of the BlendBlendover Episode 131:

Peter Egan guests as Blendover returns after a short break – and we come with big announcements! During the show, we return to Executive Order 12333 as a new NSA leaker points to it as a big problem, just as we had previously on Blendover. Later we look into the mysterious big cats lurking around places in the USA. We also look the latest Star Wars news, and then there’s that Meat Baby thing.
